Portable hard drive for Macbook Pro

Amateur Photographer - - Tech Talk -

QI have started to travel a lot with my work and I end up tak­ing a huge amount of images and videos that I need to backup while I’m away. I have al­ways used a hard drive dock at home with mul­ti­ple SATA drives, but I now need some­thing more portable for my trav­els. I don’t re­ally want to spend more than £150 but I could if I had to, and I cur­rently use a Macbook Pro. It does have the USB A ports as well as Thun­der­bolt, but I may up­date to a newer ver­sion in the fu­ture. Clive Jones

AWhen it comes to back­ing up your pho­tos there are a num­ber of hard drives avail­able. If you could stretch your bud­get a lit­tle, you could look at the LaCie Rugged 4TB RAID Thun­der­bolt with USB 3.1 Type C. This drive comes with a wrap­around Thun­der­bolt ca­ble as well as a USB- C con­nec­tion if you did up­grade your Macbook in the fu­ture. 4TB is also a lot of stor­age. Com­ing in just un­der bud­get is the LaCie Rugged 2TB Thun­der­bolt with USB 3.0 drive. This is still a rugged op­tion and is sup­plied with a Thun­der­bolt and USB Type A in­ter­face, so it would work with your Macbook, but you may need an adapter if you up­grade to a ver­sion that only had a USB- C in­ter­face.

LaCie’s Rugged hard drives are a good back-up op­tion
